How do you get kids to embrace math and science? A team at Qualcomm tackles this challenge by immersing San Diego middle school students into a world of creative engineering in the Thinkabit Lab. Adding art to the traditional STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) curriculum, Thinkabit engineer Saura Naderi inspires students to enjoy the process of designing and coding as they build wildly imaginative projects. The Feaster Middle STEAM Academy students then take those lessons back to their own Thinkabit-inspired lab at the Feaster Charter School in Chula Vista, California. (#28574)
